Message from the Dean

¨University of Dar es Salaam Business School (UDBS) is located at the University of Dar es Salaam (UDSM) main campus, about 13 km from the City Centre. We continue celebrating the UDSM 60 Years’ Anniversary since its establishment in October 1961. The UDSM Business School prepares graduates for what they will actually practice in real world – i.e. solving complex problems and offering solutions. UDBS organizes its curricula around real world business challenges in order to develop creativity and problem solving capacities in our students. The School’s success anchors on the shoulders of many transformative staff and students who worked tirelessly to see transformation of a mere department in the 1970s into a renowned Business School in the continent that we have today. UDBS constantly strives to improve the quality of graduate it offers to the market by generating new and relevant knowledge through innovative research. We are committed to continue improving our standards to meet what it takes to be competitive in the labour market in the 21st century. Our sustainability lies on our succession strategy and uncompromising investments we put into our Faculty.

¨Thanks to our alumni who shine in the labour market. Our shining alumni who make positive difference in the economy are our ambassadors, they promote UDBS through a positive word of Mouth. We are proud of you. We also appreciate our links with the industry not only due to the opportunities in experiential learning created for students and staff but also due to the feedback that help the school improve its existing curricula and develop new ones depending on the emerging knowledge and skill needs.

¨Welcome to the University of Dar es Salaam Business School. Whether you join our undergraduate or postgraduate programme, you become part of the unique community of the business knowledge generation.
